Our son, conceived in 2001 at 46

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, December 03, 2007 | 0 comments

When New Year 2002 came, Jim and I counted our blessings as a single-child family, forgetting that we had one more cycle to check. Our son, Virgil, was probably conceived in the final days of 2001, just before deadline.

He arrived early, induced at 35 weeks after placental abruption — something I, at age 46, was at increased risk for — and was born perfectly healthy on August 22, 2002.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
